I bought this bike last winter. It came with mostly Campagnolo Super Record parts. I replaced the original pantographed stem, I needed new bars, tape, freewheel, tires, cables, brakepads, and saddle. Just in time for the spring riding season.

Very nice De Rosa! Ugh, I ride 53s and wish I was evil enough to want to steal your bikes;) They are all sharp and nicely built up.

I was actually at the 2010 NAHBS a few weeks ago when my girlfriend asked, "Who is the nicely dressed older guy?" I wasn't sure. She also wondered what language they were speaking. (it was the De Rosa stall). I told her to inquire about the price of a cap and see if she could figure out what language they were speaking. Italian. Well, later in the day she decided I needed to buy something to remember our trip to the show. She liked the De Rosa caps. Asked the older gent the price of them and he didn't know, asked an assistant. "Quince". . Someone else there asked him to sign a hat...turns out the nicely dressed older guy who didn't know the price of a De Rosa cycling cap...was...Mr. De Rosa. I had him sign mine!


Great story.

Great De Rosa by the way!
